ONE FOR TWO

The CAS Watercolour theme challenge this month is birthday and the CAS Mix-Up challenge is to use cling wrap - so combined the two challenges for my card today.


The background uses cling wrap and Tsukineko frost ink (see how to here) - when dry I sponged iced spruce and broken china distress inks over all.  The background was die cut with stitched rectangle frames and mounted on a pale gray card base - outer edge of the frame is popped up with foam tape.  The flower was watercoloured with my Zigs - added the little sentiment and a few Nuvo drops - and done.


i used embossing, stamping and die cutting as extras on my card for both challenges.

Thanks for visiting today and your kind comments make my day!
